campaign near englewood, colorado. so, jim, seven states tharks is one busy day for romney and ryan. did they generate any momentum today; do you think? >> we're going to have to wait and see, don. if you look at those battleground state polls that have come out in recent days, it doesn't appear that that surge of momentum may have stalled with the arrival of super storm sandy. we'll just have to wait and see on election day, don. if you wait and look at all of these battleground states, it is very cloesz when it comes to the president and mitt romney. we are leaving now and on our way to a rally in englewood, colorado. it will be his final stop here in this battleground state. and, also, john, his final western stop of campaign 2012. we've been hearing him talk nostalgically all day long. he was talking about the long days and the short nights and how his campaign is almost there. it's almost until election day. but really, what he's been doing is delivering his closing argument. talking about what he calls real change for the country. he's been seizing that unemployment data saying tha
democrats, jerry conley, jim moran and bobby scott. the justice department is reviewing. it's interesting to me that small worked for a company known as pinpoint, a subsidiary of strategic allied consulting. that firm is already under investigation in florida. >> this company has come under fire in several areas. serious charges against it in florida. the republican party has severed ties to it. they're doing that in west virginia and colorado. it's an extraordinary turn of events. we are having a huge discussion over voter fraud and here is a company assigned to work for the party in identifying voters and doing the things they do. and evidence -- widespread allegations, serious allegations about their own hanky-panky is coming up. >> news flash. the gentleman you're talking about who's under investigation is still doing work for the republican party in other states. >> right. >> number two, there should have been an immediate investigation and you shouldn't have to wait for the u.s. attorney general, the virginia attorney general should have jumped in and done this and would have been,
other people worry about their own country. we have not problems in this country. >> jim, did you have anything to say? >> yes, i do have one question i can ask, it was george w. bush who wanted to do the libyan intervention, would you have supported it then? >> yes. >> okay, let's do something related to military and foreign policy and that is the issue of military spending. many on the left criticize the right for wanting to spend on the military print mitt romney has proposed that we spend $2 trillion in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke.

jim webb and mark warner win in virginia back when we thought virginia was a red state. you are trying to figure that out in and out. what is virginia? >> virginia is still pretty much a red state. a lot of people say purple. but if you look at the makeup of the general assembly and what's going on in local -- >> still easier to be a local republican, you think, and get elected than being a local democrat? >> well, of course, it depends on the state. i mean, if you're in northern virginia, it's hard to find a republican. if you get down where i live, it's hard to find a democrat with a search warrant. it's the tale of two states, as you're aware, chuck. >> but it's also culture. and i want to say something, a man you're close friends with, jim webb, in an exit interview i did with him, we talked about the specific issue that he thinks president obama is having. and if he weren't having it, this election would be over. here's what he told me. >> i will tell you, i said that directly to the president about two weeks ago. you know, how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the

's meteorologist jim dickey of accuweather.com. >> good morning, rob and sunny. unfortunately, keeping it chilly across the northeast. many spots without power. these are temperatures you expect you step out the door this morning. many in the 30s. burlington, syracuse, around the freezing point, pittsburgh, detroit. it's not going to end. sandy, what's left of it, large area of low pressure spinning over canada continuing to usher in chilly air. a couple showers here, nothing much in the way of precipitation but this northwesterly wind will continue. that brings that chilly air in out of can did turning progressively colder each night headed through the weekend and that sets the stage for potential coastal snowstorm. wouldn't be anything like sandy here. more your typical nor'easter. two potential paths, one could take it out to sea. rob and sunny, back to you. >> say it ain't so. >>> new york officials are facing criticism for going forward with the new york marathon this sunday despite the devastation left behind by sandy. the actual course through the city's five boroughs suffered little dama
zone. abc's jim avila shows us some of the surpring ways natural gas could blow. >>> that brings us to the fire ravaged community in the new york city borough of queens. for the first time yesterday, residents were able to viz sit their burned out homes. 111 burned in the firestorm. all the rez,000 dnts who lost everything, all they could do was go poke around in the ashes hoping just to find something. for some it was simply too much. >> i can't believe -- just two months ago we were down here. it's crazy. >> new york governor andrew cuomo toured the fire zone yesterday and promised residents that their community will be rebuilt. >>> and, i -- i keep coming back to the story. of all the scenes we have seen. countless scenes to kind of, it breaks your heart. that scene, in breezy point really its heartbreaking. not just your home, but your friend and neighbors for years. and even itch you survived it, you, you are in the midst of this scene. >> destruction. think that's what we saw in the ninth ward. katrina. certain people lost their homes. but those who still had homes, all they h
that things are getting worse. >> so we took that particular question to meteorologist jim dickey of accuweather.com to see how unusual a weather pattern like this is. >> good morning, rob and paula. well sandy will likely go down as one of if not the worst storms to ever impact the new jersey beaches and new york city. the reason behind this unprecedented impact is the unusual path this storm took. sandy's path took it directly into southern new jersey. a worst case scenario for the region. now here, every line you see on this graphic is the track the tropical system took that impacted the new york city area. well, as you can see, a number of tropical systems did hit through the years. no storm took that path into southern new jersey like sandy did on monday. so, why this unusual path? why is it unseen until now? first off, important to note, tropical systems do spot in october. the atlantic hurricane season ends november 30th here, there is a secondary peak in october of tropical storm formation. in fact it is because the storm occurred so late in october, in my opinion, that it
is trying to keep voters focused on the economy telling them he could do better than president obama. jim acosta is traveling with the romney campaign. >> we've been traveling by bus over the last few days, ohio and iowa, one thing we've heard, he's been debuting this new theme, he is the agent, he is the candidate of big change and the president is just more of what he calls the status quo. one thing we can also report is the romney campaign is right now sort of riding a wave of momentum, some recent polls, not just nationally but across several swing states have shown romney gaining some traction and getting very close to overtaking the president in several key swing states and both nationally. now, the romney campaign did put out a memo earlier in the week throwing cold water on one ohio state poll they took issue with saying it wasn't properly calibrated but they are also at the same time touting a new "washington post" poll showing mitt romney leading the president nationally and doing very well among independents. at the same time we should p point out that along this tour he has hi
to make sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and republicans and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through bankruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, wi
went through slavery and went through jim crow, i do not want to hear victims bullying the rest of america. this is what has happened. whether it's the jersey girls or the spokesman for the disabled, it's not the disabled, it's the self-appointed spokesman word police, the feminists on this word or that word, the gays on oh, you can't say that's so gay now. >> you know that it would get you into serious trouble -- >> no, i would never use it. >> you know it's deeply offensive. >> you are doing, you're so upset what sununu did to colin powell. you're trying to read my mind. no, you're wrong. i wouldn't use the "n" word because it's a curse word. >> will you continue using the retard word? >> yes. of course. i've done it since that tweet. >> disabled people -- >> i'm sure they were following my twitter feed. this has nothing to do with disabled people. it was about the president. they have injected themselves into a tweet they have nothing to do with. i would think maybe biden should be upset by me calling the president a retard but not an actually disabled person. >> let's take a
the republican team, so we got to be sure did jim it is also recollected. he is doing a great job in washington. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. we need josh mandel in washington. we need him now. president obama the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them like the stimulus package he said would result in all kinds of new jobs. that has not happened. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that has not happened. the good news that we have somebody who is running for president that has the know-how. he has the experience. he has got the experience, the record, and he knows how to work with democrats, republicans cannot independents alike to address the challenges we face as a country, and that is why we need mitt romney in washington to fix what is broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obam
find it. let's deal with the system the way it is. and that's why jim and i have a difference of opinion on this idea. >> you know, j.d., i think the republican response, the conservative response to the affordable care act is symptomatic of something broader. to me it has badly damaged the credibility of the conservative movement over the past few years. that is if the obama presidency, i would say it's moderate. it's been incremental. you look at the health care plan, as you say, which has bee insurance, the rescue of wall street, saved wall street as we know it. the stimulus, national security policies that were held over from bush. i could go on and on. the point is this, republicans confronted with an administration that showed time and again they did want to work with them and incorporate some conservative ideas. republicans instead responded by simply saying this is socialism, massive government, a threat to freedom. has the conservative movement destroyed its credibility by responding so hysterically to what has really been a moderate president? >> well, you know, i th
to respond. mr. casey you go first. casey: jim, thanks. if the supreme court were to make that decision would be a radical departure from where we've been over the generation. it would be a step in the wrong direction. we still have a way to go to make sure that the kind of discrimination which was in place for many generations is rectified that in justice is dealt with completely. we can have a big debate over how to do that but i don't think that we should take a radical departure from where we've been. and i hope, i hope that our supreme court wouldn't make a decision that could be based upon the ideology rather than what is best for the country to make sure that we are right on going wrong. >> moderator: mr. smith? smith: jim, when you ask that question, why was thinking i even with the great doctor, martin luther king, said in that speech of his that we should be judged not by the color of our skin that the content of our character. and i believe that we should try to end discrimination and bigotry wherever we find that. if we overturn that i don't think the federal government should be
their skipper as well. a classic one of a kind guy. 67-year-old jim leyland. >> i think i can simplify this one pretty easy. the way i look at it, we're two games back with five to play. but we're playing the team we need to catch. and i think that's the best way to approach it. >> that's one of those things in baseball you just can't really explain. you know, obviously we feel good about going into tomorrow's game. our backs are against the wall so we have to win. it's a one game at a time. >> and this certainly is a beautiful ballpark here. it will be filled with had 41,000 screaming and freezing fans. but it is not the ballpark that makes the tigers a vastly better team at home. you might be surprised what they say makes them better here in detroit. we're going to have some baseball history about the greatest player in tigers history at 8:30. i hope can you figure this one out. the game time 8:00 eastern time tonight on the fox broadcast network. back to you guys in that warm studio. >> see if you can send me hints. while i'm jealous of you, you should be jealous of me because you are missin
